Review: Given the involvement of Craig Richards' former Tyrant sparring partner, Lee Burridge, it's perhaps not surprising that "Lost In A Moment" is decidedly melodic, rather epic and bordering on progressive house in its outlook. It's not surprising that it appealed to Dixon, either; this is deep house that slowly unfolds over 10 sumptuous minutes, with beats that pop and click while melodies wind their way around cosmic pads. Dixon's rework is, if anything, even more grandiose, beefing up the beats while adding even more layers of vaguely cosmic chords and synth-flute melody. Honestly, it's like a German deep houser's take on prog. And it's amazing.
Review: The boundaries between deep house, progressive and techno blur on All Day I Dream 003. First up there's Mathew Dekay and Lee Burridge's "Holding On", which features dreamy synths, distended, ethereal vocals and a solid backing rhythm. Faut Pas Deconner's "Afterhour Olympics" is more stripped back to start with, but its reduced metallic drums soon give way to a cascading synth and a bassline so warm and spine-tingling, it sends out tingles with each passing bar. Finally, Dekay and Burridge team up for the dub version of "Holding On". Here, the rhythm is more firing and the filter energetic, while the chilling strings add an element of suspense to the arrangement.
